Carrefour opts for LNG to power its delivery truck fleet in Spain
Carrefour has again increased its fleet of LNG-powered trucks, thereby reducing its CO2 emissions. Specifically, the company already performs 90% of the services to its hypermarkets in Madrid with natural gas, thus achieving an annual reduction in emissions of 7,000 tons of CO2.
These more sustainable vehicles reduce NOx emissions by up to 95% and hardly generate solid particle emissions. They are also quieter than traditional trucks, thereby significantly reducing noise pollution in cities.
In this case, the logistics operator ATDL has received the first tractor trucks of the new IVECO 460 S Way, corresponding to the order of 10 units for 2020. With this addition, ATDL reaches 30 vehicles powered by natural gas in its fleet, thus continuing its strategic plan to provide more sustainable solutions to transport in Spain.
Carrefour maintains a firm commitment to sustainable development and as an organization focused on reducing the greenhouse effect, reported Europa Press.
